Distinction Award
Synchrony Financial: Interbrand New York assisted GE in spinning off its retail finance business under a new corporate identity.

After a successful IPO in 2014, the brand has proven itself capable of holding its own among established financial brands and digital competitors.
Merit Awards
ZTE Corporation: ZTE Corporation was transitioning from a B2B to B2C organization as its 30th anniversary approached. Interbrand Shanghai partnered with the global telecommunications provider to develop a new brand image to accompany this significant transformation. A flexible and customizable system was developed to create a more youthful and energetic expression of ZTE’s new philosophy.
Suzhou Center: Interbrand Shanghai’s work on rebranding the Suzhou Center successful struck many balances. The revitalized brand appeals to both residents and tourists—and, perhaps more importantly, celebrates both China’s rich history and its exciting future.
Quest Diagnostics: Quest Diagnostics, a world leader in diagnostics testing, wanted to carve out a unique and differentiated position in the marketplace. InterbrandHealth developed the brand identity to convey the core idea: Quest delivers more than test results, it powers ACTIONS. The new brand reignited excitement internally and fueled new corporate partnerships.
LATAM: The LATAM brand officially launched in August 2015—the result of the union of LAN and TAM. Interbrand’s offices in São Paulo, Santiago and Madrid each contributed to the development of the new brand. Marking a milestone in aviation history, as two major airlines united under the same flag, LATAM is not only a new airline identity, but also the realization of a new airline experience.
JSE Johannesburg Stock Exchange: With an evolving competitive landscape, the JSE knew it needed to reposition itself to attract new business. Interbrand Sampson de Villiers in South Africa took on the rebrand effort—developing a refreshed visual identity and digital strategy to create a dynamic, modern and accessible investment platform.
Getnet: In April 2014, Getnet, a Brazilian card payment processor, was acquired by Santander. Interbrand São Paulo was instrumental in combining the best attributes of both companies and building a single brand. Emboldened by visual elements signaling its speed and ubiquity, Getnet, which had traditionally provided services to small- and medium-sized organizations, is now a viable option for organizations of a much larger size.
Biznet: With new Wi-Fi and cable TV services on the horizon, Biznet, the operator of both a fiber optic network and the largest data center in Indonesia, was in need of a new image. Interbrand Singapore created a unique and flexible visual system—using approachable photography and illustrations of product benefits to appeal to both B2B and B2C audiences.
